== == == == == == Financial obligations of either parent depends upon the terms of the child support order. If there is not a court order then the parent cannot be forced to pay a specific amount nor other expenses until an order of support has been received. Yes, the noncustodial parent is OBLIGATED to pay child support, figured out by a program entered into a computer program, based on each parents net income, as well as time shared by each parent, with the child or children. Both parents are required to equally share the child care costs incurred, while the custodial parent works and also goes to school in every state that I know of. As well as, costs incrued for any medical costs for the child over what the insurance pays out. Of course you need a court order to enforce this, although every court that I am aware of, will uphold these terms.

Can I lose child support if I had an affair?

Child support is the other parents half of the expenses your child costs each month. You pay the other half. What you do in your private life, sleep with etc, can not change the fact that each parent have to pay for their child. He has an obligation to pay for his child just like you do so the child support goes to the one who has custody for the child. The court do not care about that you had an affair and will not let your child lose 50% of his/hers financial support because of it. Whether to pay or not is not up to the parents.

You can not modify your child support. Only the court can modify your child support. It is possible the court will do that. It is unusual for your wife to get half your salary. In setting child support, this is a deductible item in all states, that should have been taken into consideration. If not, you can request a modification. see links below
